Thanks so much for your response i tried that and it helps a lot it is one step in the right direction however when i launch vivecraft and it launches on steam vr and it works i can see that in the popup on my laptop however when i switch to vr mode in virtual desktop all i get is a black screen like the seamvr is not streaming to the headset??? thanks i really hope i can get this working.
